Original Car

Custom Carbon Fiber Mustang GT Intake

Plug Layout

Using the car as a model, we were able to layout the new air intake design to match the throttle body and the air filter.

Final Plug

High Density Foam Custom Carbon Fiber Mustang GT Intake

This is the final result of the hand shaped, custom plug. It’s easy to test fit the plug in place as the carbon part will only be slightly larger.

The Lay-Up
